Blowing Conch:The word ‘Shankha’ literally means pacifying the inauspicious and impure. Therefore the conch shell is blown at the beginning of any religious ritual in Hinduism and even at the arrival of the idol of any deity in the house. The conch plays a very important role in Hindu rituals.
Blowing Conch is believed to have originated from the churning of ocean or Samudra Manthan. There are two types of conches – the left handed conch shell and the right handed conch shell. The right handed conch is considered auspicious and is also known as Valampiri Shankha or Lakshmi Shankha.
Blowing Conch shell is a symbol of purity. Hence a conch shell is kept in every Hindu household with great care. It is placed on a clean red cloth or on a silver or clay pot. People usually keep water in the conch which is sprinkled while performing the puja rituals. Blowing Conch is believed to hold the cosmic energy within itself which gets emanated when it is blown. Leaving aside the mythology part, even if you hold the Shankha near your ear, you can hear a humming sound of ocean in it. This is actually a natural vibration or cosmic energy of Earth which gets magnified on entering the conch shell.
Blowing Conch is beneficial in many ways to our health. Mentioned in the Indian scriptures as a shell, it is used in medicines in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. Many diseases like jaundice, skin ailments, bones, teeth, stomach issues get resolved by drinking the water kept overnight in the conch. It has Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium and Sulphur.
The scalar sound waves that are generated by blowing the conch balance the chakras in the body. The vibration it produces purifies the air and is believed to destroy the disease-causing germs in the atmosphere.
When the Conch is blown, energy is emitted from it, which reduces the strength of distressing frequencies. The other benefit is that it helps to develop good lung capacity. It is one of my favorite breathing exercises after Pranayama.
